❗How to delete employee groups

If you want to delete an employee group, you must first reassign the employees from that particular group to another employee group. Once you have successfully assigned employees to the new group, you can proceed with deleting the original employee group.


⚠️ Please note that each employee can only be associated with one legal entity. If you have employees who work in multiple markets or for different companies within your organization, we recommend including them in the main legal entity or the one where they work the majority of their hours. Additionally, consider the currency used by the specific legal entity, as the employee's pay-slips will be generated in the same currency.
